Training on Mobile Data Collection using ODK (Feb 26 - March 2, 2018)

Dear Colleagues,

Devimpact Institute is organizing a Training on Mobile Data Collection using ODK to be held in Nairobi Kenya

Feb 5 - Feb 9, 2018 and
Feb 26 - March 2, 2018

Advances in information technology have opened exciting new avenues for how research is conducted and data collected, with huge implications to monitoring and evaluation (M&E). One of these advances is the use of Mobile Data Collection (MDC). Instead of collecting data on paper using a pen, which is then manually entered into a database for analysis, data is input into a device which is then capable of exporting directly into a centralized database for processing and analysis.

Open Data Kit (ODK) is a suite of tools that allows data collection using Android mobile devices and data submission to an online server. This training will equip the participants with skills to author, field and manage mobile data collection platform using ODK.

By the end of the course you will be able to:
• Create survey forms using Build or XLSForms
• Upload forms to an Aggregate server
• Load forms into Collect on an Android device
• Use Collect to fill out forms with participants
• Upload survey data from Collect to Aggregate
• Analyse or export data in Aggregate

• Introduction to Mobile Data Collection
• Introduction to Open Data Kit (ODK)
• Designing and Creating forms using ODK Build
• Creating and Designing XLS form
• ODK Collect
• ODK Aggregate Server
• Visualizing Geographic Data

The training fee for this course is USD 800 which covers tuition fees, learning materials, and training venue. Accommodation and airport transfer are arranged for our participants upon request.
